An experimental study on the effect of shrouding on air natural-convection heat transfer from staggered vertical fins has been performed. Two types of shrouding that are frequently encountered in the actual use of finned surfaces were considered: lateral and frontal vertical shrouds and horizontal obstructions at the leading edge of the heat sink. The results show that convective heat transfer may be enhanced or reduced by the presence of obstructions; in particular, the different location of… CONTINUE READING
